Hawks acquire Jeremy Lin, draft assets from Nets

Lin joins a crowded backcourt in Atlanta with incumbent starter Dennis Schroder and 2018 top draft pick Trae Young on the roster, though the move likely spells the end of Schroder's time in a Hawks uniform if the front office can find a willing trade partner.

The two teams will also exchange future second-round picks in the deal, according to ESPN.

Lin, 29, was sidelined for the entire 2017-18 season after rupturing his patellar tendon on opening night.

During a partially healthy season in Brooklyn during the 2016-17 season, Lin averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 assists over 36 games.

Spencer Dinwiddie stepped in while Lin was out and became one of the NBA's most improved players.

Lin, headed to his seventh National Basketball Association team as he prepares to enter his ninth season, now joins a roster that includes two notable point guards, No. 5 overall pick Trae Young and veteran Dennis Schroder. He produced 2.8 points in 7.4 minutes per game.

Since leaving the Knicks, Lin has played with the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, the Charlotte Hornets and the Nets.

Whitehead, 23, averaged 6.3 points and 1.6 rebounds in 16 games off the Brooklyn bench last season.
